The Divine Feminine: Introduction
An Online Group Exhibition (July 2020)
Participating Artists: Elisabeth (Beth) Hudgins, Linda Maldonado, Elise Ritter, Deborah Taylor
What is “The Divine Feminine”? It is the spirit of empathy, connectedness, wholeness, and creativity that dwells within and around us. It is the sacred, sensuous, and invisible presence that urges us to explore, express, and grow. It is the soul’s yearning to connect with the infinite.
In this exhibition, four artists express their interpretations of The Divine Feminine in personal and unique ways. Each focuses on an aspect of The Divine Feminine: the natural world, relationships, the containing vessel, and the shape of the feminine. Drawing on inspiration peculiar to their experiences, the artists produce an array of landscapes of the spirit in nature, figures in relationship, abstract designs of feeling and spirit, and visual evocations of creativity and intuition.
As they developed the art for this exhibition, the painters gathered periodically to share their inspiration and ideas, their sketches and challenges, their feedback and suggestions, and their appreciation of each other’s translations of The Divine Feminine.
